It’s sad news that Madeleine Collinson passed away on August the 14th according to the Peter Cushing Society website.
She’s most memorable to me for playing the part of Freida Gelhorn in Hammer Horror’s, Twins of Evil. What an eye opener it was to me as a very young teenager, watching this sexy and powerful vampire late at night. Her image is one that I’ve never forgotten and if I think of a female vampire, I instantly think of her. If you have never watched Twins of Evil, now is the time.
Madeleine together with her twin sister Mary, were voted Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month in October 1970. They were the first identical Playmate sisters.
My thoughts and condolences are with her family and of course her beautiful twin sister Mary.
